A good way is to buy a SD card recorder . Just a small unit you can plug you camera into ,runs from 10-12V adapter .I've just bought a model recently from CPC ,plug any camera into it and using it's built in motion sensing ,it will record either 5 or 15 seconds of footage directly to an SD card .You can buy units that you can put your own HDD into ,these run from a 12V source and can record upto 4 cameras at one time.The VHS idea is a not a good idea .you will quickly wear out the tape heads unless it's a made for the job one like a timelapse.
ps .the cameras to get nowadays are the CCD one's ,better quality than the CMOS. Aim for something highish in the way of TVlines ,420/480/500 ,anything less may give you poor picture quality.Of course , these ones wont be £29.99 to buy.

That seems OK. But how much can you fit onto an SD card? You'd need to buy quite a few of them?

Anyone know of something with a 3.5" or 2.5" hard disk?

You'll be able to use with with a VCR &/or DVD Recorder if you wish.

However it's only 380 linest & has a minimum illumination of 1 lux. Meaning the picture won't be the clearest unless it's for real close up subjects. Also if you want to see at night you'll need an additional light source (sensor light, or IR led's etc).

Ditto.
Any pointers from someone who knows of something for home use, ideally with wireless camera suitable for outdoor use would be apprecated.
We've had a few burglaries in the local area recently, and the wife is getting worried, as I work away from home quite a bit.
Cheers.

Can you provide a link to the SD card recorder?

This is good value for a simple colour system, but is limited and old technology.
No movement detection, so on all time and really requires monitoring 24/7 or recording to be watched AFTER the event.

HD recorders for surveilance are £100s, and the better ccd cameras are expensive too.

Nowadays cameras tend to be wireless and have motion detection, either PIR or use a PC as a recording device with software that detects motion, alarms and records the motion to the hard drive.
One cheapo system was the Motorola Homesight? an expandable alarm/monitoring system that has wireless and wired colour camera, computer interface and wireless pir detectors for rooms and wireless door sensors for inside the house. PC World sold off the starter kits for £49.97 and there may be still others around still.

There is a BT security system, cannot remember if it has cameras tho.

Some of those SD cards recorders are primarily designed from recording from a source like a Freeview box or other source at a timed interval .But others that are designed for CCTV use are only activated when they are triggered by movement . My first SD card recorder has a plugin camera and is movement sensitive and will capture either digital stills or moving footage are various intervals 3 , 5 or 10 seconds ,but not both at the same time. Quality of the camera is not good and is domestic based and will probably only be 370TVL at most . My second SD recorder [the one from CPC] allows you to plug in any camera ,even wireless .Has built in movement sensing and will only capture moving footage timed at 5 or 15 seconds .For this device I have just bought a Sony CCD camera from ebay from only £12.99:
SONY 1/3" 420Line Camera Board
3.6mm Lens
Video Power Cable
This to mounted in a camera case .
I also bought again from ebay , 2 x LED lamps . This sends out a beam of invisable light 20 or 30 feet . This light is picked up by any B& W camera .So ,once set up I will be able to automatically record in total darkness anyone in my yard or by the doors or cars .
I haven't had time to try my new camera out for picture quality as I'm working this weekend ,but will and report back .Also I can upload pictures of the devices for anyone who's interested in such security devices .I've had a few years experience in this sort of thing including devices that can plug into laptops and PC's to record .
update: heres a picture of just some of the security gadgets ,including the 2 recorders , wifi cameras and LED lamp.

these are just toys - a waste of time and money unless you just want a cheap deterrent. At night these will be hopeless so you better fit a flood light outside your house. I have tru night and day dome cameras - each cost £120 and produce decent pictures. I would not buy these...

Could this be used as a video baby monitor?

If you are asking about the cameras then yes, You just need a TV of course you would have to have the TV on all the time you are monitoring the baby’s room. It maybe cheaper to buy a dedicated baby monitor.
